life-threatening allergic reaction if they consume these products. although the company did not use the term "recall" the candy bars were removed from the store shelves and those who purchased the products could return them for a full refund. the company is expected to bring back the candy with new labels. it is a lesson hard learned for her and tyler. >> i am definitely more dill -- diligent and cautious of what i give him and the labels he reads. >> new regulations requires federal health officials to study what happens when food makers share their equipment. the goal is to find out if the food is likely to be contaminated with dangerous allergens like nuts or milk, and if it puts more consumers in danger. i will keep track of that and report back as information is available. >> that's not something you would see on the label. >> no. >> thank you, michael. nobody won the $360 million powerball jackpot. nearly 2.7 million people did win something. here is a look at the numbers
